Acromag unveils its new BusWorks® 900EN I/O modules with EtherNet/IP™ protocol. Each remote I/O module has a built-in Ethernet network port and can operate independently, eliminating the space and expense of buscoupler devices for monitor and control systems. They interface up to 12 analog or discrete I/O signals directly to an EtherNet/IP network. Without that buscoupler expense, these I/O modules are able to deliver a far more cost and space-efficient solution.

The RH158 Series Incremental Rotary Encoders from Pepperl+Fuchs feature an industry standard 58 mm diameter housing with a mounting profile of less than two inches, allowing it to fit in tight locations. The hollow shaft configuration allows it to be mounted directly to the application's shaft without couplings, while the torque rest prevents it from rotating. Models come with pulse outputs up to 5,000 ppr, a maximum frequency of 200 kHz and a choice of three or six outputs and a cable connection. Additional features include a 10 mm or 12 mm diameter shaft bore, alarm output and 10-30 VDC or 5 VDC power.
